President Uhuru Kenyatta and visiting Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed Ali made an impromptu appearance at the Museum Airshow Festival held at the newly redesigned Uhuru Gardens in Nairobi City County on Saturday.

The airshow, organised by the Kenya Defence Forces and the Aero Club of Kenya, was held as a forerunner to the official opening of the new Uhuru Gardens National Monument and Museum.

Thousands of Kenyans attending the airshow were treated to scintillating aerobatics and extreme manoeuvres by Kenya Air Force jets and a rich selection of corporate and civilian aircraft.

While at Uhuru Gardens for Saturday's Museum Airshow, Uhuru and Abiy made an extensive inspection tour of ongoing works at the redesigned ultra-modern public park ahead of its official opening.
